The struggle is real. I think it’s a sentiment that all of us can identify with – some days more often than others! Often it is used just to acknowledge and/or to agree with someone’s bad day. Even a simple “bad hair day.” Other times, the challenges are more complex but, the truth is, we constantly… Read More My Spirit is Willing, but…..
I don’t tend to have a bucket list. If I even have a to-do list, I try my best to keep it very general. Otherwise, I can way too quickly become a slave to my list. If you read my previous post, that is not a surprise and explains my thinking. Bucket list aside, I… Read More Nine Things I’d Like to Do
I, like many, choose a word at the beginning of the year. A word for the year. A word to focus on throughout the year and, ideally, one that God had impressed on us and that He could use through the year to capture our hearts and thoughts. My word for 2019 is surrender.

One of my favorite verses – my life verse, you might say, is I Peter 1:7…”That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:” That verse contains so… Read More Not of This World
June has been an emotional month. Certainly full of those events and moments – and even some days – that cause all the emotions. Of course, when I look back over the past weeks that have made up June, it is necessary to remember the good with the bad. The hard with the exciting. It… Read More Remember. Be grateful: June 2019
Every day – at least once a day and, depending on who I talk to in the evening, sometimes multiple times each day – I am asked, “How was your day?” Typically, I reply, “Good. Thanks!” And while I am not trying to overthink what is, for the most, a simple courtesy – I was… Read More A Good Day
The prompt for Five Minute Friday this week is: QUESTION. There are so many penetrating questions throughout the Bible. For instance, when Jesus asks the adulteress woman, “Where are your accusers?” Or when He asks the lame man waiting by the pool if he wants to be healed, or the many times He rebukes the… Read More Will You Walk Away?
Tomorrow is summer! Sure – it has pretty much felt like summer for weeks now. School is out and temperatures are high:) But the calendar makes it official tomorrow. Woo hoo! Just for fun, here are two “little lists” pertaining to summer. At least, summer for me! Four must-haves for summer: 1 – Shade! Ha… Read More Four things: Summer Edition
